A car accident can leave the injured with far more problems than the injuries which are serious enough. The injuries will be handled by a medical team. However, there are several other problems which do not have nearly as easy a solution, complicated as the medical solutions may be.
The pain and suffering of your injuries can be unlike anyone else has experienced, and it could be less so. However, you are entitled to fair and just compensation for your pain and suffering and your family’s emotional suffering. You should contact a Car accident attorney in PA so he can begin the process of investigating the accident and assembling a case which he may have to present in court. Of course, he will first attempt to reach a settlement with the insurance company.
What does assembling a case look like to you? To begin the process, it involves many steps on the part of the attorney. These are steps you cannot take in your current physical and mental state. The attorney will visit the accident scene since there are often clues left behind the cleanup. A trained eye knows what to look for.
The next step would be to look at the car which caused the accident. The car may have bald tires, banged up sheet metal, perhaps even beer cans in it. Bad brakes are just one more indication the driver is careless. Conducting a background check on the driver will reveal his driving record and incidents of family violence, and this could indicate a “hothead” behind the wheel. One never knows what useful information a background check will turn up.
The Car accident attorney in PA will continue to complete an understanding of the accident by interviewing the EMS workers and the investigating police officer. These interviews will yield valuable information since these are professionals who are trained to see evidence that others will miss.
There are two steps the attorney can take if he feels they are warranted. One is to hire an accident investigator to go out and study the scene and the other car. This could turn up information that an untrained eye would never see. Secondly, he may hire an independent doctor to evaluate your records and render an opinion on prospects for your recovery. This doctor’s opinion could be very helpful in settlement discussions or court. You can schedule an appointment and learn more.
